MLB.TV streaming reaches viewing milestone
NEW YORK (AP) — Fans have watched more than 11.5 billion minutes of game action on MLB.TV during the regular season, a record for the streaming package and a 9.8% increase over last year.
The five most-watched games on the 20-year-old streaming platform came this season, including the Red Sox-Yankees opener on April 8.
Overall, nine of the 10 most-watched days and games were from this season. Last year, more than 10.5 billion minutes were viewed, marking the first time MLB.TV passed the 10 billion-minute milestone.
Major League Baseball also said in a release that companion programming saw an 84% increase. This was also the first season MLB had a pair of streaming network packages with a Friday night doubleheader on Apple TV+ and Sunday afternoon games on Peacock.
